Wings and Plenty for Twenty

Posted by Micah at 6:37 PM
I am... in love with the new "Wings" collection from Close to My Heart. It's not available to the public just yet, but today I got to play with the paper and stamps and put together a couple of projects.

See that nifty ribbon? it COMES that way, already pleated!!

The bird is from the January Stamp of the Month and the sentiment is from Dreams, also released in January.

It may be hard to tell but the colors are Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Vineyard Berry and black... I also used a bit of Garnet ink on the front of the bird.

I also got an order today! Aside from the approximately $20 worth of items I ordered, I also got "Miracle" (D1140) for the Plenty for Twenty free stamp deal this month! I love that it's a surprise which retired stamp you're going to get... I've got another parcel which should arrive tomorrow!

If you'd like to get your own free stamp set ($26.95 Cnd value) just place an order through MyCTMH site of $20 (before tax and shipping)... during the check out you'll see an item added to your list titled, "Plenty for Twenty".

Edit: I changed the top picture to one taken in better light.

LOVE this card!! The colors are so rich and the fact that the ribbon actually "comes" pleated?? Wowza! That sentiment is so sweet, too! :)

What a beautiful card and love how the birds tummy is a bit darker. Love the paper, I am a butterfly fan. What a great idea to have the ribbon already pleated, beautiful. Lovin' all the goodies. May have to check things out if Santa leaves me money :)
